As Asheville wedding photographers we love that we have 4 seasons here in the mountains of North Carolina and South Carolina. Here is why.

Lauren and Josh were married at Pretty Place Chapel on a cloudy but beautiful Autumn day. Hands down this was the best color of the year for us. It was simply stunning.

Now, lets back up a bit to the beginning of this gorgeous wedding! Here are a few of our favorite getting ready moments.

Lauren’s sweet puppy loved being in the middle of everything as you can see!

Lots of tears to be shared! This is the moment when Lauren’s mom gave her the handkerchief with her own handwriting embroidered onto it.

Josh’s mother Janet gave Lauren this sapphire ring to wear for the day. Josh remembers his mom wearing it a lot while growing up. I love that.

First look with dad brought out even MORE tears all around!

We LOVED Josh’s bowtie! It was a handcrafted feather bowtie made by a charleston company called Brackish.

The gals loved the color surrounding the not so busy road. So naturally we took photos among it.
